These wine popsicles taste like frozen wine spritzers. They are easy to make with only a few ingredients, and the perfect choice for a grown up dessert.
Popsicles, ice pops or ice lollies are a fantastic treat for summer, and adults will love this alcoholic version made with wine.
They are incredibly easy to make, and store well. Keep a batch of frozen wine ice pops ready for whenever you want a little treat. Just make sure to keep them separate from the kids treats!

Wine: Use any of your favorite wines. I like to make wine popsicles with a fruity red wine or a sweet white wine. Rose is also a great choice!
Lemonade: Adds some flavor, and improves the texture of the popsicles. You can alternatively use tonic water or sparkling water as you prefer.
Lemon juice: Complements the sweetness of the wine, and improves the flavor. Can be omitted.

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl or measuring jug. Make sure that any sugar or sweetener is completely dissolved.
Pour the liquid into popsicle molds, and freeze for at least 8 hours or overnight. The popsicles will then be ready to serve whenever you want!
- Use silicone popsicle molds rather than steel or plastic. Popsicles are much easier to remove from these molds.
- Don't fill the molds completely, as the liquid will slightly expand as it freezes.
- The exact amount of liquid needed to make the ice pops will vary depending on the size of your molds. If you have any leftover, you can drink it like a spritzer.
Wine popsicles can be served as an easy dessert, treat or snack. They are particularly tasty on hot summer days, but you can enjoy them whenever you feel like it.
I also love serving these for garden parties or late night BBQs, instead of classic cocktail.
Different wines: Try making these with any wine that you like, including red wine, white wine and rose wine.
Different sparkling drinks: Replace the lemonade with sparkling water or tonic water. Try raspberry, lime, strawberry or blueberry flavored sparkling water!
Added flavor: In addition to the ingredients, you can also add a little flavor. Try adding a teaspoon of orange extract or vanilla extract for that little extra.
With chunks: Speaking of the little extra; make the popsicles a little more interesting by adding diced fruits or berries to the popsicles. Sliced strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, dragon fruit and kiwi works wonderfully.
Store frozen popsicles in a freezer for up to 6 months. When they are removed from the freezer, they will defrost quickly, so I recommend serving them immediately.
